Book Repair & Restoration

Preserving, and restoring any kind of book is CS Book Art’s mission. We make books, we collect books, and are passionate about saving books. We employ numerous techniques and skills to preserve and repair page, spine, covers, red rot, and any other needs your book may have. We also educate on the proper maintenance of a book to help keep it looking good for generations to come!

Do you have an old book that’s in pretty good condition it just needs a new cover or a little love? Do you have a really old book that’s a mess and you’re not sure what to do!? Whether it’s a Family Bible, a special project, an antique box, or your dog chewed the book you borrowed, we have you covered! Check out this article for more information!!
